Read full description of the books Reversed Thunder: The Revelation of John and the Praying Imagination:I've been reading through Eugene Peterson's 'commentary on Revelation for a second time as we've worked through it at church (you can catch some of my sermons here: www.wormleyfreechurch.org.uk). I have to say that it is the best book on Revelation I've read so far. Rather than analyse every verse and detail, he reads it thematically, taking grand sweeps through a number of a chapters each time. It's also a very symbolic reading; rather than taking everything literally, he sees it as poetic, firing the imagination to see the world in a different way. He adopts a very pastoral approach, taking the letter as being written to a Pastor to his churches seeking to speak into their current context. Reversed Thunder is definitely not a dry reading, inspired by Revelation's poetic language, Peterson writes colourfully, grasping you as he brings the text alive. For those who struggle with Revelation, seeing it as too difficult or too scary or the domain of whacky Christian beliefs, I don't hesitate to recommend this fantastic book!
